World Theatre Day: Margarita Xirgu (1888-1969)

The theatre was her life, so she kept on acting even when she was forced into exile during Franco’s dictatorship. She was popular in Spain as well as in South-America.

For a glimpse of her performances watch this video of Bodas de sangre de Federico García Lorca, a film version of the play directed by Edmundo Guibourg, that was first screened in Argentina in 1938.
